All orders shipped to locations outside of the state of California are not subject to sales tax. All orders shipped to locations in California are subject to the sales tax rate of 8.75%. However, if you have a California State reseller certificate, then you qualify for tax-exempt status and will not be charged sales tax for shipments within the state of California. To establish exemption eligibility, your CA Reseller’s Certificate must be submitted prior to the purchase of the products.
All goods are shipped from our warehouses in Los Angeles and Walnut, California. Orders totaling $900.00 or greater qualify for FREE Shipping within the Continental U.S.A. (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico). Standard Freight policies are for shipments to a single destination by carrier and route of U Need Hardware Company’s choice. Most items will be shipped via UPS. Options for this service include Standard Ground, 3-Day Select, 2nd Day Air, or Next Day Air. Please Note: UPS does NOT ship to PO Boxes.
UPS does not consider Saturday, Sunday, or holidays to be shipping days. For ALL orders/shipments, any and all address corrections, modifications, or delivery change requests after the order has shipped will incur a $15 correction fee per UPS.
If you (the customer/buyer), provide an incorrect or incomplete address (e.g. incorrect street address, missing street address, missing or incorrect suite/apartment number, or incorrect city/zip code), UPS will charge us an address correction charge of up to $15. We reserve the right to pass this on to you/the customer, and by placing an order with us, you agree to these charges in the event you provide an incorrect or incomplete delivery address.
Once you begin the check-out process, your shipping cost will automatically be calculated for you. All shipping rates are determined by the UPS shipping gateway, calculated based upon each product’s weight and dimensions, package size, the shipping location and destination, and the shipping service selected. All shipment and delivery dates on acknowledgments are estimates only. U Need Hardware Co. will not be liable for air freight or any other charges if goods are not shipped on the estimated date or if goods/shipments are lost or damaged in transit by our shipping carriers.
All claims for damages and shortages in shipment must be reported to us in writing via email within 48 hours after receipt of goods. Our Customer Service Team will assist you with your claim and correct any problems. For damaged items, you must save all packaging materials and items for inspection by our shipping carrier. A member of our Customer Service Team will contact the shipping carrier immediately on your behalf.
All appropriate documentation, including any from the shipping carrier, must be submitted with the claim to expedite the claims process. Please contact us if you have any questions or need assistance.

Out of Stock items will be back-ordered unless otherwise noted by the customer. We will notify customers of any back orders and an approximate availability date and we reserve the right to select the shipping carrier for any shipment. While we will attempt to comply with customer's telephone or written change orders and/or order cancellations, we cannot guarantee that the change can be accomplished before shipment, since most in-stock orders ship within 24–48 hours. Our Customer Service Team can inform you of the status of your order and advise you whether or not the order can be canceled for a full refund. Once an item is/has shipped, the terms of our Returns Policy will take effect. Made-to-Order, Special or Custom orders are nonreturnable and noncancelable.

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors/finishes of our products that appear on our website. However, the finishes/colors you see may vary depending on different monitors settings and screen resolutions, and we cannot guarantee that the monitor's display of any product's color or finish will be accurate. If you are unsure about a color or finish, please feel free to contact us for assistance.
Lacquered or clear-coated finishes should be wiped with a soft, damp cloth. A mild soap may be lightly used if very dirty. Particular care should be taken to avoid paint smears, thinners, and strong cleaning agents as they will quickly destroy the protective coatings and subject the finished to rapid oxidation and discoloration. Initial care for finishes requires only periodic cleaning with mild non-abrasive soap and light buffing with a soft cloth.
